Brace yourselves: Dianny’s gonna rant

Sorry to do this to you, but a rant is forthcoming.

Can someone please tell me why anybody who claims to be conservative would steal images from another conservative and pass them off as his own?

I went over to Today’s Toons at the Right Reasons.

And lookie what I saw:

Yup! Some shitpickle took a PatriotRetort.com image, sloppily scrubbed out my logo, added a fruity border and passed it off as his own.

Because when I hear “Conservative” I think “someone who steals images from others and passes them off as his own.”

If you are a regular reader of Patriot Retort, you probably recognize that image.

I did for my post titled The buck stops …. over there

This happens more times than I care to say.

In fact, I’m always seeing PatriotRetort.com images with my logo removed – they float around Twitter and Facebook.

And every now and then Pookie (without knowing they’re stolen) posts them in Today’s Toons — where I then stumble across my own stuff repurposed as someone else’s stuff.

Listen, I have absolutely no problem with anyone saving and sharing my images to social media so long as the PatriotRetort.com logo appears.

But what really infuriates me is when some shit-for-brains decides to save the image and doctor it so as not to give appropriate attribution to the one who actually made it.

Unfortunately, I’m not the only one this happens to.

It happens to everybody. Just ask Big Fur Hat from iOTWReport.com.

And what makes it especially irritating is people who are supposedly Right-leaning are doing it.

If someone wants to be a lazy, good-for-nothing mouth-breather who takes credit for another person’s stuff, then why not become a Leftist?

This is as juvenile as putting your name on somebody else’s homework.

Sorry for the rant. But sometimes this kind of shitty behavior has to be called out.

UPDATE:
I asked Pookie to pull the mouth-breather’s image and replace it with mine. And he did because that’s the kind of guy he is. Pookie would never knowingly post a stolen image. Just like folks who retweet stolen images may not know they’re stolen.

So thank you to Pookie for being so quick to take that badly doctored image down!

    It happens to everyone. I always post anything I steal with the signature on it. You are being kind not mentioning their name.

      I have no idea who did it. But Pookie was kind enough to remove the offending, poorly doctored image with the froofy, gay border and replace it with the original.

      You’re not “stealing” when you post an image with the proper credits on it. You are PROMOTING and that’s a good thing!
      You’re NOT a Conservative when you take a VERY CLEVER MEME, strip the credits and add your own. YOU’RE a POS. It makes the creators want to quit. Which I quit doing videos – too much aggravation for the work involved when you’re donating time and resources.

    I also repost many of your images as well as stuff from all over the internet. Because of the format I use, I sometimes need to re-size them or cut some height from them. I always go out of my way to add back the logo of the source if the cropping would remove it. Further, quite often I grab witty comments from others like Dixon Diaz, and turn them into memes. When I do, I make sure to give him the credit he deserves by adding his logo. Considering the value you guys provide, and almost always at no cost (you know I hit your tip jar now and again), the very least you should get is the credit for your brilliant work!

    Recognize this image?

    This image went viral in 2015. Except the All the Right Snark Logo and my DIANNY signature were cropped out.

    In fact, the cropped image was so widely shared, Snopes actually had to debunk it as being a “photo manipulation” from All the Right Snark.

    And then there’s this one:

    The thief had to do a little more work to steal this one. But the stolen image has gone wildly viral.

    Which only goes to prove there are assholes on the Right too.

    My videos and images get ripped off constantly. Hey morons who don’t have the talent enough to create your own stuff – all you are doing is hurting the cause. I don’t do videos anymore. Too much work and aggravation when it gets ripped off.

    Since this thread has become somewhat of a who’s who of the Right leaning blogosphere and you seem a fairly tight knit group, I have a question. Does anyone know what happened to the person who maintained http://liberallogic101.com/ ? It was one of my go to sites for great memes and He/She hasn’t posted any in a month. I can only hope they’ve moved on to greener pastures as opposed to something bad happening to him or her.

    I have posted graphics from your site occasionally,but always with your logo and full accreditation.This is sometimes necessary because I have an original thought about as often as cicadas hatch and I’m something of a techno-retard.
